St Clement Danes was designated a National Teaching School by the National College for Teaching and Leadership in 2013. We lead the Herts & Bucks Teaching School Alliance, a group of educational organisations in the south of Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire who collaborate to promote exceptional standards of education. This prestigious role sets us at the cutting edge of developments in teaching and learning and facilitates a close working relationship with the Department for Education. It also ensures that our staff have access to superb training opportunities to enable them to develop as practitioners, whatever their field. It is no accident that our staff retention figures are so healthy, nor that so many of our leadership roles are filled from current staff or those who choose to return to the school.
The Danes Educational Trust currently comprises four schools: St Clement Danes School, Croxley Danes School, Chancellor’s School and Onslow St Audrey’s School. Dr Josephine Valentine OBE is the CEO of the Danes Educational Trust. She was Headteacher of St Clement Danes School for 20 years. She is a National Leader in Education, a DfE Advisor and has oversight of all four schools.
For teachers looking for their first school, or one in which to grow their careers, the Danes Educational Trust also provides the first-rate training of a Teaching School and has to be one of the most exciting prospects in the South East of England.
